The demo lets players create their own character and takes them through the first few hours of the game. The save data from the demo can then be transferred to the full game, which will also unlock a rider costume for Navirou, the player’s Felyne sidekick.

The demo takes up approximately 4,252 blocks.

The game originally released in Japan on October 8, with an updated re-release, known as Monster Hunter Stories 1.2 Renewal Edition, in Japan on July, 27. It is currently unknown which version of the game will be sold to Western audiences, but the 1.2 update should be free to download from the Nintendo 3DS eShop if the original version of the game is released.

Furthermore, there is also an anime series called Monster Hunter Stories Ride On which follows a story similar to the game. Those interested can watch the series on Crunchyroll in Japanese with English subtitles and with an English dub through Funimation’s streaming service.

Monster Hunter Stories will be available for the Nintendo 3DS physically and digitally on September 8 in North America and Europe.
